My name is Randy Rider, I am a fourth generation firefighter in my 13th year at my fire department. I just completed my term as chief of the department and I now serve as training officer. I also serve as a Fire Instructor for Erie County. I joined this page because I am passionate about firefighting. I believe in the brotherhood of firefighters, a brother is a brother no matter what! It isn't just a saying it's a way of life.
I had a question for you, I am a College student in a Fire Hazmat class and I was wondering if you could tell me one or two simple things that have changed with the NY Fire Dept since Sept 11th with Hazmat training and/or response? Thank you it is MUCH appreciated!
